Tamara Patterson Obituary, Death – When I say that this is a blow, I am not exaggerating; in fact, it really is a blow!!! It is with a HEAVY heart that I relay the news that our sister was given her wings late yesterday night. I am very sorry for your loss. Tamara Patterson possessed an amazing character; she was a friend of mine, she really cared about her students, and she worked right up to the very last day of her life advocating for teachers!! Yesterday, despite the fact that she was sick, she persisted with writing NBI for KEA DA despite the fact that she had to work.
She got in touch with me about a month ago and told me how excited she was about the possibility of us working together on a summer project for kids. I will make sure that we follow your directions to the letter and do everything just as you said. I have not lost any of the discussions with you, Tamara, referring to the manner in which you wanted everything to develop! We are unwavering in our commitment to carry it through!! I will never forget the moment when you and James Hughley came to my school wearing dashiki shirts in order to give my principle some advice.
when is a memory that will be with me forever. Please extend a heartfelt embrace to James on our behalf. During this trying time, I will pray for you and Rocky, as well as the rest of the JCTA/KEA family and everyone of your kids. I am sorry for the trouble that we are all through. I will still go ahead and purchase the activity that you asked for your birthday in order for your students to take part in it. My sweet little princess, you have my complete and utter adoration. Maintain a watchful vigilance over us! You are going to be missed very, very much. Already, I realize that I am hankering after the peculiar twang of a rural accent.
